Introducing a new section of our blog where we’ll share what’s on our plates during the week. Sometimes it’ll be a new recipe, sometimes it will be a quick and easy drive-thru option or a relaxing dinner out…either way, it will be real keto in real time.

This week health coach Amy Eiges shared what was on her plate over the weekend.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Tomato and Feta Cheese

I am always surprised when I hear people say keto and low carb are boring.

Most of the time my meals are super simple, because I have don’t have the time (or patience!) to cook during the week, and I find the more involved I am with food and food prep the more I want to eat, but every so often I try to make something that is a little more complex than burgers, steak or grilled chicken. And by freezing leftovers of the more involved recipes in individual portions, I build up an “arsenal” of ready to defrost weeknight dinners.

Here’s a super easy recipe from SkinnyTaste.com I made this week that I had been wanting to try for a long time.

A few recipe notes: I rarely use sundried tomatoes, and when I looked at the jar I had purchased, realized there were a lot of crappy ingredients in there, so I reduced the amount and added in some plain canned plum tomatoes I had in the cabinet. Label below….sunflower seed oil and sugar. Why??! Lesson learned — check every label before buying!!

The recipe calls for panko, but I substituted an equal amount of pork panko (crushed-up pork rinds).

Instructions say it takes about 15 minutes of prep time. Full disclosure: took me about 25 to cut everything up, but the recipe is very easy (and pretty fool-proof). Made enough for leftovers so I don’t have to cook tomorrow and I put one in the freezer for a busy weekday dinner. Bonus points that I only had to clean one bowl and one pan!

3 meals, one prep. Not boring!

Amy Eiges is a health coach and reformed chronic dieter who is passionate about helping others recover from the diet-binge-gain-shame cycle she struggled with for years. Since discovering a ketogenic and low-carb lifestyle, she has lost over 200 pounds and has both reversed pre-diabetes and resolved lifelong depression. "When I was just starting out, facing 200 pounds to lose seemed insurmountable, and the idea I would ever be where I am now was unfathomable. Know this: I am not extraordinary. I just finally got the right advice, put one foot in front of the other and didn't look back. I know now that it can be done, but after battling this war for 40 years I had lost hope that it was really, truly possible. I am living proof that it is."
